states with his older brother, tamerlan a decade ago. the two lived together in cambridge, the suspect who was killed in a shutout this morning, tamerlan is a tsarnaev was 26. in 2007 he became a legal resident in america, he was a student at bunker hill community college and competitive boxer. this violent and drautic series of events was not set off by police, but by the suspects themselves, who were apparently trying to escape law enforcement. here's how it played out. around 10:00 p.m. last night, the suspects robbed a store. they then proceeded to fatally shoot an m.i.t. security officer and hijack a mercedes suv. the owner of that vehicle was held hostage for half an hour while the two brothers pulled $800 out of an atm. they released the owner of the mercedes unharmed. police chased the suspects into watertown, where this shootout took place. the suspects exchanged fire with police and threw explosives towards them. at one point, tamerlan sarn ev got out of the car wearing an ied strapped to his chest and was shot by police. his body was run over by dzhokah tsarnaev as he fled t

two. these are the pictures that came out overnight. tamerlan tsarnaev. number two on the loose, a fugitive right now, believed to be armed and dangerous, described as a terrorist, he was caught on camera last night, he's been on the loose for several hours and all of boston, the entire city of boston surrounding suburbs in lockdown right now. >> that's right. abc news just spoke to those boys' father, he is in shock and implores his son to himself up. he told abc news, he said that he think his sons were set up and he said they were very nice kids, never touched explosives and never learned how to handle weapons. he said that his younger son is on the run and in hiding because he's also afraid, words from his father. never saw indication at all atwas capable of violence. we're reminded by brad garrett, our fbi specialing at, often these terrorist lead double lives. we begin with chief investigative brian ross, on the ground, all through the night in watertown, brian, a night of gunfire, bombs, police hunting down the terrorists right now. >> reporter: indeed, george. he was las
was a islamist extremist and believe in their cause. tamerlan tsarnaev travel oversees in 6 months, in 2012, that was not on the fbi radar that he misspelled his name on the travel records to deliberately disguise his travel or there was a mistake from the russian airline and it was not flagged to the bureau. >> fbi, and cia and every intelligence agency is scrambling to figure out what is coming next. who were they associated with? are these guys lone wolves? it was cleared they were tied to international terrorist groups in chechnya. are they tied to al qaeda? we don't know yet. >> reporter: law enforcement tells fox news one of the ways they were able to identify the brothers as suspects in the investigation through surveillance video not publicly released where you see the two brothers reacting in completely different manner than the rest of the crowd when the blast goes off. they do not turn toward the blast with some foreknowledge much what would happen and they continue on their way, jon. jon: what about their overseas ties for the two brothers, what are we learning about that? >> re
says a foreign government reached out and is asked them to use their resources to check in on tamerlan because they thought he had ties. they went to work looking for derogatory phone calls or on-line searches or posts that promoted radical activity. any associates thoan to be radicals. they looked at his travel history and travel plans, his education history. the fbi interviewed tamerlan and his family members, but we don't know which family members. what we know is they didn't find anything suspicious. no proof of terrorist activity so they cleared him and losed the case. and closed the case. they told the foreign government who was inquiring that if they were ever worried about tamerlan again they should bring it to the fbi's attention again and they would follow-up once more. that government never followed up again and that was two years ago. early last year we know that tamerlan traveled with a kir swrik stan passport to see his father in russia and pes physically chechnya. of a -- after a few months he returned to set up a youtube account and he used it to post and promote radica
. >> reporter: police shot tamerlan tsarnaev. he was pronounced dead a short time later at an area hospital. >> this was a trauma arrest. multiple injuries, probably we believe a combination of blasts, potentially gunshot wounds. >> how many gunshot wounds? >> unable to count. >> multiple gunshots? >> yes. >> i'm sorry i didn't hear the rest of that. >> and probably a blast injury also. >> blast meaning what? >> an explosive device, possibly shrapnel, a thermal injury. >> can you describe where it was? >> it was pretty much throughout the trunk, it was multiple wounds. >> would it be consistent with perhaps a bomb strapped to the chest, would it be consistent with that? >> unclear. i think the medical examiner will be able to conclusively say that, but there were signs of more than just gunshot wounds. >> reporter: the brothers were of chechen heritage and came to the u.s. around ten years ago. a circuitous path took them through dagestan, a volatile region in southern russia. 26-year-old tamerlan reportedly was a hip-hop fan, and a gold gloves boxer. in an online spread of photos that show
-old tamerlan tsarnaev was killed earlier after a gunfight with police. he left behind dreams of becoming a world class boxer. we also found a youtube page in his name with links to islamic websites. in a photo essay so thot by a boston university student, tamerlan tsarnaev was saying i don't have a single american friend. i don't understand them. he and his brother are from the russia caucuses including the war-torn regions of chechnya and dagestan. the brother became a u.s. citizen on september 11th of last year. tamerlan followed and got a green card. dzhokhar attended school outside of boston where he earneded a scholarship. friends and teachers we talked to say they never saw any signs of trouble. >> regular teenager. didn't suspect anything. he was on the wrestling team. he went to parties with other students. he went to the prom. >> a wonderful kid. we were proud of him. he was an outstanding athlete. he was -- there's nothing -- he was never a troublemaker in school. >> their father insisted his sons are innocent. someone framed them. i don't know who exactly did it but someone di
question this morning is: how much did other members of their family know? keep in mind that tamerlan, the 26-year-old suspect who was killed on thursday night moving into friday, that he was married. he was married to an american woman who became a muslim after she married him. they had a three-year-old daughter together. it's questionable now whether or not they were actually still together at the time of this bombing. some sources are saying that she, catherine, pictured here, had moved back home with her mother, judith, with the baby. and maybe that would be when tamerlan ended up going back to russia for those six months because if you're married and you have a small child, you might wonder, that would be suspicious to be gone for six months. >>steve: she is on the cover of the new york post today because she always dreamed of growing up, joining the peace corps and serving this country and others abroad. then she got tangled up with this guy, converted to islam. next thing you know, she dropped out. there is an interesting item in the "wall street journal" today that says essent
and the subsequent shootout in which the older of the two were killed. his name is tamerlan tsarnaev. he is 26 -- was 26 years old. it's his brother. the man said to be wearing the white hat who got away and has been pursued by authorities. he drove the car jacked suv for a time and then got out. both of the two brothers, we're told, came to the united states roughly a decade ago. they came in when their families sought asylum. their father was a government employee. they have been living in the boston area in cambridge for several years. the younger brother has a massachusetts driver's license. he's a resident of cambridge. the older brother is a legal, permanent resident. the older brother was born in russia. the younger brother, the one they are still trying to find now, dzhokhar tsarnaev was born in kyrgyzstan. his family lives in russia and we're told his father was a public official there at one time. the reason we're told for this extraordinary security in the area of watertown is, of course, because they still don't know where the other of the two brothers, the second bomber is located
last night in the interaction with police, tamerlan tsarnaev who was 26 years old. it all started last night in cambridge. there was a shootout with an officer at m.i.t. on the m.i.t. campus. that officer having been killed last night, found dead in his police cruiser. the suspects then reportedly carjacked an suv, and a chase ensued. at one point they did release the driver unharmed. they went into watertown which is just outside of cambridge, about 10, 15 minutes outside of cambridge and that's where there was a shootout with police. by 1:30 a.m., the first suspect tamerlan tsarnaev was dead and the second suspect was on the loose and being chased. this morning at about 5:00 a.m. police shut down the mbta. they have also now seen the shutdown of amtrak between boston and providence, a major shutdown. ed davis, commissioner of police, says this is a major man hunt. >> overall at this hour we've seen a lot of activity. they have surrounded the home in cambridge of the suspects where both lived. the a.p. reportedly got in touch with their father overseas in russia. their father expressi
to keep an eye on the older one, tamerlan, go interview. the f.b.i. did talk to him in 2011 and they cleared him. they said this guy has been scrubbed. he's okay. >>alisyn: they assessed he had not become radicalized even though it sound like russian authorities thought he had. for some reason there was a red flag they raised. they let him go. >> not totally clear it was the russians, because the australians may have had questions about this guy as well. some foreign government asked us to check him out. we did. didn't find anything wrong. then they dropped the ball on their end too. >>alisyn: we're going to be talking to so many experts this morning and brick all the new developments -- and bringing all the new developments kofplgt up, he is captured, in custody. the 19-year-old suspect has not been read his miranda rights. we'll tell you what that means as our breaking news coverage continues. stay with us. ♪ using supercomputing and mobile technology over our secure network, verizon innovators are building a world of medical treatment data in the cloud. so doctors can m
. >> they seemed to distance themselves somewhat. that the also reports fbi actually interviewed tamerlan two years ago. >> we are hearing that from a law-enforcement official. there was an interview at the request of a foreign government. concernequested out of that the fbi spoke with him two years ago because there was concern that before he was about to make an overseas trip, he had in extremist ties. the fbi spoke with him and reported back to the foreign government that they had no concern and this trip would be ok. following this trip, we are hearing that he went to russia where he had family and he came back much more religious and much more observant of his islamic faith. this came from friends that knew him. this is something that will now be a part of this investigation as the president, after speaking with reporters, following the arrest, there will be a full investigation and the full federal resources will be dedicated to answering some of these questions. that is one question that will be examined -- if there was a concern and he was on the radar, why wasn't it followed up on? thank y
brother tamerlan was killed, that they had links to chechnya. they were born in chechnya. you miiht rorl that is the break away russian republic that couldn't break away. russia would not allow it. under three different prime ministers would never entertain it. the reason why that is crucial, chechen rebels, if there is a link to the outfit we know there is the chechen separatist it is, and there is no way to prove that, if there is they take no mercy. nine times out of 10 when there was a violent act two years ago in movie theater, two years prior to that in a school and i think about a year before that in a hospital, each time the rebels are surrounded they kill themselves, often times, i believe in the case of the school attack claimed better than 40 kids lives. they blow themselves up. in that case with a number of kids. that's why given that history and give the precedent that rebels would rather kill themselves than ever, ever, surrender to police, authorities are on the scene are handling with the greatest of care. so you can understand why we sort of just wait and watch. they des
the names of these young men, tamerlan, probably tamerlan, a great islamic warrior who had many campaigns that resulted in the deaths of millions of people, and also the young brother, dzhokhar, named after the similar name, anyhow, to the first president of the czech republic, islamic republic, that was formed there. so i don't know if there's anything about identity when you're given a name like that as a youth, what kind of, what does that do to your mindset and your self-image and identity, what's expected of you. interesting to hear the profilers talk about that. >> it is very interesting, this 19-year-old who we believe is the suspect now cornered, authorities believe with some level of confidence that is who they have cornered in this small boat in the backyard. we know he came to the united states at the age of 8 years old back in 2002, i believe it was. his brother, who died last night, died at the age of 26, came four years later, i believe at the age of 20, did not himself become a u.s. citizen but did get a green card. >> but you know, the fighting in chechnya really started i
. the older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev, was 26. nbc news learned he spent six months last year outside of the country. authorities are still piecing together where he went and what he did during that time. there are many questions tonight. joining me to help answer them is nbc investigative correspondent michael isikoff and former director of the national counterterrorism center michael leiter. and former fbi profiler clint van zandt. let me start with michael leiter. the other day, it seems like a year ago, two, three days ago you, had this sense, professional instinct, if you will, that this killer, one of the two bombers, was a local. tell me how you came to that assessment. >> well, chris, my take -- >> he is a local. >> he is a local and he's got deep ties to boston. and my take was there's no doubt that the boston marathon is a worldwide known event, but unlike many of the targets, a lot of people really have used in the past, there's something specific to boston about it. there's something specific about the finish line and about patriots day and my take from that was that this
says that the fbi came to their cambridge house two years ago to interview tamerlan tsarnaev, the older brother. >> before he went to russia? >> before he went to russia. so they have some record of him, some reason why they went and interviewed him. >> that is something. after he knew he was a subject of interest, he went over and took that trip. >> right. >> let's get back to whdh. >> they are just trying to secure the scene so that way they keep themselves safe and of course the people in and around the immediate area safe as well should this person possess any dangerous, lethal types of weapons. >> all right. thank you. let's go back to steve cooper with new information. >> i was just speaking with another source who is close to the scene. i'm now being told that there's no movement in the boat. i'm also hearing that he may be bleeding out and not -- and it's not safe to approach and again the reason why is concern of possible explosive devices that he may have on him or with him. so -- >> let's get the image on screen right now. this is the house with the boat behind you. this is n
whether the elder son tamerlan, actually did meet someone suspicious. we know that he was with his father. his father has spoken at length about both sons actually. he did confirm the man did come out and visit and stayed with them. both parents have actually said that they believe both sons, the 26-year-old tamerlan, now deceased, and the 19-year-old dzhokhar, the one who's in custody in the hospital, they say that they were framed. and the mother has actually accused the fbi of regularly harassing the family. she says because they are chechens, ethnic chechens. now, the parents have been living more recently in dagestan which is in the north caucuses region. now, this is a very troubled area. it's a small russian republic, but it's neighboring chechnya. both of these areas have seen a lot of conflict, particularly an active separatist group in dagestan right now, there's a mission taking place in the area to clean up what the government says is a guerrilla group. now, the mother, of course, has described her sons as good people and that they were persecuted because they were chechens an
